Question 2.2 Muffler vs 2.5RS muffler

I was just offered a 2.5RS stock muffler for my MY00 OBS. The question is... is there any difference? I don't want to spend cash on changing like for like!

Not looking for performance gains as such, though a deeper sound wouldn't hurt.

Anyone know for sure?

AFAIK, It is the same muffler, different tip. At least from a 95 OBS to a 99 RS, it is.

i'll vouch for that...

who needed new muffler and wanted stock after having his original squashed on a curb which cracked a weld and left it sounding like a pigeon was caught in it. No performance gain with the "new" '99

Same with a different tip? Then it's not the same...

What does different tip mean? Larger? If it is, then there may be a sound difference and a slight increase in flow right?

Nope. same part number on the muffler.

the '98 RS's got this little bolt on chrome thingy that went over the 2 inch pipe that stuck out of the muffler...while the later cars got an actual 2.5 inch chrome tip.

EDIT:
Same muffler, different tip. An exhaust only flows as well as it's narrowest point. A big tip does no good....

Hey thanks for the clarification...

No point in doing that then.
